Everybody's Revolution: The Car, the Plane and Us


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Since the second world war an explosion has taken place in Britain. The traffic on our roads has grown by five times and the number of passengers passing through our airports has multiplied by 50. This sudden expansion affects us all whether we like it or not. Tonight's special report examines the implications.
The car and the aeroplane: these two are special. When a future historian comes to write about life in Britain during the second half of the 20th century he will find that these two familiar vehicles have had a more radical influence on our lives than any other of the innovations which we call progress. So we are going to compile a sort of television notebook to help him, while most of the visual evidence is still around.


Introduced By: Hugh Scully
Reporter: David Fairhall
Reporter: Godfrey Hodgson
Producer: Peter Robinson

BBC Two England, 1 January 1972 19.45

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
